Everyone hates Howard County's nearly annual school redistricting. County officials hate it, students hate it, administrators hate it. But parents hate it most of all. They don't want to move their children from the schools they attend. They say redistricting will break up communities, cause kids to lose friends, be nothing but a big hassle. But the root of their frustration - the problem no one wants to talk about - is Howard County's skeleton in the closet: Not all schools are equal.

The children think the hulking metal structure is cool, even if they aren't sure what it's supposed to be. A 21-foot-high artwork unveiled in front of Thunder Hill Elementary School in Columbia has received rave reviews from schoolchildren, staff and parents. The school is the first in Howard County to receive such a major piece, and many say it is indicative of Thunder Hill's commitment to the arts.

A few dozen youngsters spent a recent rainy day listening to the exotic sounds of Australia, Africa and Asia -- all without leaving the confines of the Slayton House in west Columbia's Wilde Lake Village Center.Tim Gregory, a co-director of Nada Brahma Productions, said he believes music and dance are every human's birthright. He and Made Mantle Hood of Ellicott City and Don Lee of Baltimore demonstrated ethnic instruments for the children during a four-hour program Friday.The instruments were as simple as the Australian bull-roarer -- a small slab of wood on a long string that produces a pulsing roar when spun in the air -- and as elaborate as a 200-year-old Balinese children's gamelan ensemble, which consists of gongs and small xylophone-like instruments with bronze keys mounted on ornate gilded bases.
